Hexagonal shape looks pretty cool, but I question its aerodynamic efficiency.

Yea, run Kodi 17. It does not have the issues for some reason.

If you go under system then I believe video then turn settings to advanced or expert go into acceleration and disable the amlogic hardware acceleration. This will fix the 16.2 crash issue until the issue can be addressed in the full release of Kodi 17.

How to boot this box to 1440×900 resolution or below? In the kernel command line resolution is [email protected] and in settings/display does not help with LG W1942T with DVI connector. The monitor says: digital out of range 67.5Khz/60Hz when using it via hdmi-dvi cable.

Does anyone know if you can run a VPN on the Sunvell T95Z Plus? I have looked everywhere and I cant find anything on this subject. Even on all of the thousands of adds and auctions on ebay, NONE of them talk about VPN capabilities.

Thanks for the reply. Yes I have seen it too on some reviews, but again no one EVER talked about it in the reviews or showed how to use it, I mean NOTHING! I dont want to buy one and then find out that I can not use a VPN on it. The box really looks nice.

Thanks for that. I already have a VPN (ExpressVPN) they are great. Been using them now for little over a year. They have apps also. I did not see one for this box per say, but like you said they had one for Android TV Streamers. I dont want to have to set my Router up on VPN either. Again thanks for all of your help!

You can set up VPN on this machine but so far I have only been able to get PPTP working but it is horribly slow. All other protocols will not connect. I have tried a direct configuration through the PureVPN app and it still is SLOW.
The wireless speed even without VPN running is about half of what I get even with my cheap android phone.
I would avoid this hardware because I cannot imagine some no name Chinese company ever issuing a software update.
